History and symbols of the Basque Country

The Basque Country (or Euskal Herria) is a territory of traditions that extends over more than 20,000 km². The French Basque Country (Labourd, Lower Navarre and Soule) represents 15% of the total area of the Basque territory but is full of vertical and legendary climbs.
In the French Basque Country, the mountain largely dominates the landscapes with the Pyrenees in its center which form the natural border between France and Spain. From deep valleys to high pastures, the topography is extremely demanding, even for climbers.
The many villages with typical architecture form human oases in the heart of a wild region where forests, woods, meadows and a very varied climate with abundant rains reign supreme.

The route consists mainly of asphalt roads. A few short sections of gravel will give you a hard time.
We recommend using:

  • Road / CX / Gravel Bike

  • Disc brakes
  • Transmission: 50-34 teeth (front) – 11-34 (rear)
